The actress-writer-comedian-activist has agreed to host the 29th annual GLAAD Media Awards Los Angeles, an event that will be held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. She'll share the stage with a slew of stars including honorees Britney Spears and Jim Parsons and special guests Lena Waithe, Olympian Adam Rippon, Chloe Grace Moretz and Gigi Gorgeous. The GLAAD Media Awards honor media for "fair, accurate and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues," per the organization.
The Los Angeles Times newsroom has weathered cuts, management clashes and — according to CNN, which has reported on the turbulent times — descriptions of being a "hot mess." One of the paper's star columnists, Robin Abcarian, described it "more like being on the inside of a pinball machine" while accepting an award from the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
Adam Rippon won a bronze medal at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and has followed it up with a gold medal-worthy PR blitz after landing back in the United States. The figure skater proved to be a breakout star of the games thanks to charismatic interviews with people like NBC's Andrea Joyce and a series of witty, and often sharp-tongued tweets, some of which were directed at Vice President Mike Pence.
At @PMK_BNC offices today for dedication of new multipurpose space “The Kingsley” in honor of legendary cofounder Pat Kingsley, who is 84 but has better memory than most anybody, evidenced during very cool Q&A. Nice tributes from Cindi Berger, Heidi Schaeffer, Catherine Olim. https://t.co/CKvAfzjAfB
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
